The Internet Handbook for Writers, Researchers and Journalists
Publisher: The Guillford Press
This book proves that you can teach an old dog, like me, new tricks. My children and I have been online since we got our first Macintosh. Two years of America online, two years of a local, now national ISP – Networld – and for the past ten+ months we’ve enjoyed a cable connection through AT.. Lately I’ve been feeling, like the guy in the commercial, where his computer tells him he has reached the end of the internet, until I stumbled upon this book at the library. Not only does it have a new WWW. addresses on almost every page – An internet trawlers dream – It is loaded with Macintosh and Windows tips on:
Mary McGuire is Associate Professor of Journalism at Carleson University in Ottawa, Canada.
Linda Stillborne is an Ottawa-based educator, Internet technology consultant, and writer.
Melinda McAdams is a professor at the University of Florida, where she holds the Knight Chair in Journalism.
Laurel Hyatt is a freelance journalist whose work on computer -assisted reporting has received extensive coverage in specialized journals such as Scan.
Second, I noticed that Macintosh tips were presented before Microsoft tips. Maybe that’s alphabetizing -But- I prefer to think, these intelligent women are net-savy Macintosh Women, who dabble with Microsoft!
Third – I ran out and bought my own copy! Mostly because I had planned to, but truly, I bought it because when I tried to renew it at the library online -(Damn)- There was a hold on it! Seems someone else wants to check it out!
